Chris Benoit: A Fight To The Death

Before anyone had heard of Vince McMahon, WWE Raw or Friday Night Smackdown, a true wrestling tradition took place on Friday nights in the Stampede Grounds of Calgary and some of those who wrestled here would become the biggest names in the industry.

These included the likes of Andre The Giant, Owen Hart, The Junkyard Dog, Davey Boy Smith and Chris Benoit, but soon one by one each of them would prematurely die along with many other graduates of Stampede Wrestling following the same faith. In the past decade and a half, a dozen of them have died at an average age of just 41.

In this episode of “The Fifth Estate” they examine the tragic faith of arguably one of the more famous of those listed above, Chris Benoit, in an attempt to track down the truth behind what really happened.
